Back from Tokyo, the medal-winning athletes and para-athletes of the French Olympic & Paralympic Team were given a standing ovation by the Group's employees at their Paris headquarters.
They thrilled and amazed us all summer long! On Monday, September 13, the red carpet was rolled out for the 43 athletes and para-athletes, supported by the Group's companies and brands, on their return from Tokyo!
It was an opportunity to express our pride in having accompanied them on this wonderful adventure. During this summer rich in sporting feats, out of the 87 French Olympic & Paralympic medals, more than 40% were won by athletes supported by the Group's companies.
This was an exceptional moment when several of them spoke about their performances and chatted with our enthusiastic employees who had come to celebrate the event: dedications on a wall of posters set up for the occasion in the hall of the headquarters, along with opportunities for selfies and souvenir photos.
Our warmest congratulations to all our athletes and para-athletes as we look ahead to Paris 2024!
